Buy Wholesale Linalool Isolate
If execs in the beauty industry were forced to pick their favorite terpene, they’d probably go with linalool. Found in over half of all perfumes, linalool has a soothing, floral aroma with just a touch of heat. Although it is most often associated with lavender, people could also get a sense for this terpene’s aroma in herbs such as mugwort, rosewood, and mint. Research suggests linalool developed on cannabis and other plants primarily as a means of defense against pathogens. For this reason, many scientists are interested in exploring this terpene’s potential as an antimicrobial agent. Lavender (and, by extension, linalool) has also been praised by ancient civilizations for its supposed calming qualities. Although tests are still being conducted, this terpene could potentially help with many conditions ranging from insomnia and anxiety to Alzheimer’s and epilepsy.
- Chemical composition: The terpene linalool has an official chemical formula of C10H18O.
- Aroma: The best way to get a sense of linalool’s aromatics is to smell fresh cut lavender. As mentioned in the intro, lavender owes its unique floral aroma to the presence of linalool. Although this terpene has a rather soothing and subdued aroma, it also has a slight kick. Linalool’s spicy side, however, is nothing like that found in the terpenes of hot chili peppers! Instead, linalool’s warm notes are closely associated with coriander and cinnamon, both of which have traces of the terpene.
- Effects: Lavender has often been used in folk medicine to relax anxiety and insomnia sufferers. Modern day scientists are now exploring just how powerful the sedative qualities in linalool really are. In addition to helping people with anxiety conditions, some doctors believe this terpene has neuroprotective properties. A few studies have been conducted on linalool’s efficacy in reducing epileptic seizures and boosting brain health in Alzheimer’s patients.
Yet another area of research scientists are looking into is how effective linalool is against various bacteria. Just a few harmful organisms doctors are currently studying its effectiveness against include: E. coli, C. albicans, and P. aeruginosa.
Linalool is not stored in the body’s fatty tissues, most scientists believe it’s highly unlikely to cause adverse effects in higher doses. The vaporizing temp for linalool is set at 388°F.
